Question: Whats the difference between Sondern and Aber?

It would be incorrect to use aber in the last three sentences as the first clause contains a negation. So sentences with sondern present a positive alternative to the previous clause. However, sondern can only be used if the two clauses are logically connected- by using the same verb or a similar one.
